Monrovia, January 28, 2022 - The Cuban Embassy in Liberia, together with a representation of friends of the island in the African country, commemorated the 169th anniversary of the birth of José Martí.
The president of the Liberia-Cuba Friendship Association Kesselee King Kanneh, on behalf of the friends of the Greater of the Antilles, referred to the current relevance of Martí's thought and work and ratified the support to the Cuban Revolution in its struggle against the criminal economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the U.S. against the heroic Cuban people.
The Head of Mission of Cuba, Mercedes L. Martínez Herrera, spoke about how the legacy of José Martí is present in the hearts of Cubans, who love and build a country in spite of the great difficulties imposed by the criminal Yankee blockade.
The Cuban diplomat pointed out that Martí is also present in the tens of thousands of Cuban doctors who spread love, humanism and solidarity around the world to help countries in need.
José Martí was a man of lofty principles, a Cuban of universal projection who surpassed the frontiers of the era in which he lived to become the greatest Spanish-American political thinker of the 19th century.
